Science @ Stirling was a great event. We had some smashing talks, and a lovely engaged audience who asked great questions. We got some great audience feedback on the night:

Event Details


Always wanted to know what researchers at the University were up to, but were afraid to ask? Come to our science cabaret! The show will feature a diverse selection of short, highly visual presentations disclosing thought-provoking facts and stimulating topics from animal attraction to catching criminals.

This is a free, but ticketed, event in which audience members will be able to enjoy a complementary glass of wine and nibbles while novel research from biology, computing, health sciences, mathematics, and psychology are unveiled at the event, to be held at the MacRobert Arts Centre. Arrive at 6.45pm for drinks. The show starts at 7pm and is expected to end at 9pm. There will be an interval.

Take me to the ticket website!

Note (25/1/2016): we are sold out. If you have a ticket but can't come any longer, please return your ticket to the box office. If you don't have a ticket then the box office are keeping a waiting list. You may turn up on the night and hope for cancellations - there are always a few.

The Science Cabaret is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council through the POEMS network for predictive modelling for healthcare and is organised by the Stirling Chapter of Science Grrl. The talks will be at an appropriate level for those aged 12-100.
